it's an itchy situation for actress angelina jolie after she has to cancel attending several events for her upcoming movie "unbroken." >> i just wanted to be clear and honest about why i will be missing the "unbroken" events in the next few days. i found out last night that i have chicken pox. >> so making that video to explain why she'll be skipping out on events, including the film's hollywood premiere. she has the chicken pox. her video comes days after an e-mail conversation between sony pictures co-chairman and hollywood producers scott rudden. they came to light in which rudden calls angelina jolie a, quote, minimally talented spoiled brat. they both apologized for the e-mails. while there is high drama on capitol hill tonight, the government shutdown is averted
3:19 pm
at least for now. let's look at the senate floor. that's where they passed five-day temporary spending bill that's aimed at funding the government at least through wednesday. after that, who knows? that after a more permanent deal unraveled last night. ted cruz and mike lee with -- with they bypassed mitch mccontinental. demanding bills that president obama's executive order be removed. there was newfound opposition by the reenergized liberals in the democratic party. they've a had a white house shutdown. some wondering, is there a revolt in both parties? tammy bruce and our other guest joins us now. welcome. tammy, you got this newfound life, then you got cruz leading the charge against immigration on one side. elizabeth warren on the other side leading against the big banks. what does this mean for
3:20 pm
the final two years of the obama administration? >> i think it's very exciting for both parties. at the same time, you've got to deal with whether or not these are people in the form of cruz and mike lee and elizabeth warren, if this is just all show boating. but they also have an opportunity to show whether or not they can actually organize, if they can make a difference. it's also an opportunity for the parties themselves to be able to show the american people what they really stand for at this point because at this stage, this governing by crisis where it's always waiting until the last minute, it's almost like they need an intervention. we've got to have a van pull up to congress to take them to the rehab center because we've got to get something done. we haven't had a budget for six years. warren is an interesting individual. we'll see what she's really capable of. ted cruz up to this point has just, well, he really hasn't been able to persuade or organize. but maybe this is the time he'll be able to do it. >> they'll need a big paddy wagon. short of an intervention,
3:21 pm
elizabeth warren, that's causing a lot of ripples in the democratic party and in your party and the liberal wing. and the white house, fromly, probably doesn't like it. >> you know, these guys cannot win for losing. leadership has finally come together and now rank and file are coming apart. what can you do? i'm hopeful because i see good faith in these leaders coming together and seeking to keep the government running. but i don't want to see the people run over. i think the devil and really god is in the details. we've got to look at these $300 million that will be removed from the student pell grant program and p hundred million dollars -- $300 million that will go to the collectors. we have to look at the military, as we look at them, no one is talking about raising the wages of personnel. i think i'm very concerned about the gutting of dodd frank, banking regulations matter. we can not put the american people in peril again. but i have to congratulate the president, speaker boehner, senators reid and mcconnell
3:22 pm
for coming together in this transpartisan evident because it's not a bipartisan effort. this is funding for the american people and i agree with miss bruce. i hope that we don't have to have an intervention. i hope it is not like some addiction, but it seems like we're stuck on crises. we've got to get over that. >> you just said kind of the magic words i don't think everyone would expect, reid and boehner coming together. what can hoop -- or the white house will be standing there. did the president use the telephone pleading, actually pleading his case to his fellow democrats. >> i think is really -- we have to rise above party. this is not about partisanship, as i just said. this is about the country. you've got students who need relief. you have the homeless who need relief. you have government workers who are on pins and needles
3:23 pm
wondering if they might get paid after wednesday. i'm so glad to see senators reid and mcconnell come together. they should have done that a long time ago thaws is what we need. i mean, i think we do need an intervention. i think the american people need to weigh in. i hope they will call their senators and congress people on monday and request that they pass this budget. but also don't run over the american people. we need our needs met. >> tammy, you got five days. this goes through wednesday. wednesday night, are we going to be back looking over the cliff? >> this bill is 1600 pages long. it means there is a lot of secrets in it. no one has been able to read it. miss jackson's notes, the things she knows is in it and isn't in it. they hope by governing by crisis that no one will have time to see or to read or to know what they're doing. one of the big things that they supposedly have gained is the
3:24 pm
taking off the creeling when it comes to campaign donations. because the gop was worried about finances for the 2016 campaign. in this kind of a process, you guys, it is the american people who lose automatically. there is a reason why so many people were fired on november 4. because we're tired of this absurdity. we need a budget. we need cool deliberation and a transparent process that boehner promised that we are not getting. we got somebody like frankly mia love coming in as a republican in the house. how about mia love for speaker of the house for a change? if the gop is serious about showing america that it is willing to really make change and to get something done that was serious, let's -- it's about not just leadership coming together. they've clearly left their base alone. it seems like both warren and cruz have been left out of any discussions. this is about governing, you guys.
3:25 pm
it looks like nobody in either party is willing to do that and i think in january, we're going to have a chance to make another deal. >> i want to make a point when you said that they haven't read this bill. since when did that stop them from voting on something? remember obamacare? z is going to read 1600 pages? >> think we'll have a better time at the beginning of the new year with the republicans in both houses? >> i think if the people weigh in, if they weigh in, i don't care what party is in charge, i want the people to win. i think there is a way for the most prosperous country on earth, for big business to win, for big people to win, for little people to win. i'm anxious for that to happen of the but the americans have to understand that your involvement in this process cannot end in the voting booth. you got to call and get involved. >> we see the protests in the street and people are getting involved, maybe we'll have something a little different next year. >> i'm voting for tammy bruce. >> i'm voting for you. >> oh, no, no, don't do that to me. >> stay here. we need someone who is sane to

deal with these people and analyze it. thank you so much. >> god bless you. merry christmas, everybody. >> thank you. listen to this one, a florida couple awarded more tha] $1 million after receiving unrelentless phone calls from bank of america. the couple sued the bank under the telephone consumer protection act after they received over 700 collection always over four years. they said the bank started calling them after they got behind on their mortgage payments. bank of america asked the court to reconsider the award, but the judge rejected the appeal. there has been a desperate search for some survivors after there was a massive landslide that wiped out more than 100 homes. we'll fill you in. we've been reporting about the situation in afghanistan. we're supposed to leave at some point, but we've been seeing a spike in attacks, even a

spiriva helps me breathe better. sfx: blowing sound. does breathing with copd... ...weigh you down? don't wait ask your doctor about spiriva handihaler. a deadly string of attacks rock afghanistan, leaving around 20 people dead, including two american soldiers. this all happening as the u.s.-led combat mission draws to a close. begging the question, is this the right time for us to leave? joining me now is rick ranell, former spokesman for four u.s. ambassadors. good to see you. >> good to see you. thanks for having me. >> i want to start with those images we just saw. when you see a rise in such attacks, how do you answer the question, is this the right time to leave? if the terror groups, like the taliban, isis, also know the drawdown plans, how do they plan and strategize?
3:32 pm
what we have in afghanistan is we're going to have some sort of forced level there, which is good. but as you point out, we've actually announced the drawdown. so the taliban knows exactly what's coming. they know thediç  international assistance force, including the americans, are going to beh,ic r the next months and years, drawing our presence way down. that's not a good thing. the other thing that's happening is the -- they're really testing the new afghanistan government as well as the american resolve. what i'm hearing inside the american embassy in kabul is beginning to go into the cities and really test our capabilities. what we need to be able to do is coordinate with the afghans so that there is some sort of air support. we can provide air support, not necessarily support on the ground, but having a presence there, doing the air support, i
3:33 pm
think combined with what the afghans can do can really create a more comprehensive strategy and that's what we need inside afghanistan. >> what's the ploy to go in the cities? >> well, right now they're going into the cities because the weather has been unusually nice and usually the taliban is already inside pakistan? the hills. but they're not there. they're staying in and around the city and they're just on the march. so what they're trying to do is to get more territory, test or resolve to make sure that as we draw down, we're also not completely withdrawing our presence inside afghanistan. we need to be working with the afghans, again, providing air support, not necessarily boots on the ground, that are going from house to house. >> so they're kind of play ago game to see what our next move is, if we're pulling out the troops, then what's left behind in terms of defense, in terms of what we might -- >> they're testing us, much like they were doing in iraq.
3:34 pm
without a status of forces agreement what, we really have in iraq is a recognition by the terrorists there that we're done. we're pulling out, and the place is yours. so what we want to do in afghanistan is while we're there, still have a comprehensive strategy that shows we have resolve. we'll get in the airplanes and use our air capability if we have to while we work with the afghan troops. >> you're usually in touch with state department officials. what are you hearing from them in terms of this strategy and just the -- i guess the whole idea of the international defense -- well, the international defense we have in place. >> the international force i think is losing its resolve and beginning to pull out as well. so what we really need is the president and the national security council to make it clear that all of the work that we've done in afghanistan, all
3:35 pm
of the sacrifice and all of the money that we've put forward is not in vain. what we want to be able to do is as we have a smaller, tighter presence at a base inside afghanistan, that we also, though, have the resolve to go out and do what's necessary. i think if we show that leadership, we can get others to follow and that's exactly what needs to happen. >> okay. i want to talk about this. switch gears. the senate intelligence committee, they released a report about the e.i.t.s that are used by the c.i.a. officials. okay? this is drawing a lot of reaction, strong reaction from the international community with -- i wanted to ask you,,d:y u.n. officials on record, that bush and c.i.a. officials should be prosecuted for torture. i want to hear your reaction. >> you know exactly what my reaction is going to be. this is typical u.n. stuff. when i was there, they always want to blame america first for
3:36 pm
everything. however, when there is a crisis, they want to rush to america and make sure that we're giving much leadership as possible. but in this particular instance, it's really hard to swallow when you have russians and chinese lecturing us about human rights problems. let's just say the russians shot down a passenger jet inside ukraine and now are trying to play the moralréoí equivalency . they're trying to say, well, we make mistakes and you make mistakes and it's all the same. i think what needs to happen is the senate democrats who issued this report need to recognize that it's being manipulated around the world. they need to stand up and talk about the u.s. exceptionalism. they need o say look, we may have problems, but it's not a policy problem. it was an implementation problem. and we will always be able to talk about our problems and fix them immediately. it's not an institutional problem like what you have.
3:37 pm
it's not denying citizens on a daily basis freedom of the press, freedom to congregate. it's all those issues that the chinese have and we need to be able to speak very clearly. when there is silence from the white house on these issues, then our opponents and our enemies get to fill that silence with some really bad information, some propaganda that will harm us for a very long time. so i think the senate democrats have the responsibility to stand up. they're the ones who offered this political report. they need to give it more context. otherwise we're going to suffer internationally. >> okay. rick, always good to hear your perspective and we'll see you next time here in new york. come to the cold with the rest of us. >> you come to alice california. >> i'm there next week. see you. there has been a devastating natural disaster in indonesia. rescue crews looking for any survivors after a landslide

3:39 pm
3:40 pm
3:41 pm
3:42 pm
3:43 pm
from surf boards to sainthood, the vatican giving its permission to begin the process of beatification for guido schaefer. he was 34 when he drowned while surfing in rio, a few months before realizing his dream to become a priest. schaefer was known as the surfer angel, born in a wealthy family, he dedicated his life to helping the sick and the poor and promoting surfing within the church. how about that? there has been some stinging criticism from house minority leader nancy pelosi as she bucked the white house. she said she was heartbroken over president obama's support of those big bank measures in the government spending bill. white house press secretary josh earnest says there is a policy difference, but that will not damage the relationship between the two. >> we'll just say that the president has always had not just a good working relationship, but an open mind of communication with leader pelosi and that didn't change
3:44 pm
yesterday and it's not going to change in the future. >> so does nancy pelosi feel the same way? what does it mean when two of our nation's top democrats disagree? susan susan estridge is fox's contributor. welcome. as you just heard, the white house says there is no rift, but they're -- at least on this issue, there was a rift. does that spell trouble fort president's last two years in office with his own party? >> you get this little pumpkin pie here. you had the big pumpkin pie, but when we're down to the piece that obama and pelosi are fighting about, you know, we're down to a sliver in the pie. and pelosi, i think probably rightly, called the president on the give away, as some are describing it, kind of accurately. i think it's important for her
3:45 pm
to give notice to him that over the coming years, she is going to be watching, but it's a sort of sad commentary at the end of the thanksgiving meal when all that's left for the big relatives to fight about are those two pieces of crumbly pie at the end. and it does look a bit like that. >> let's look at what the two big relatives in the democratic party said. miss pelosi, also on the house floor when she spoke said this. quote, enormously disappointed that the white house feels the only way they can get a bill is to go along with it. the white house fires back, the president's respect and affection for pelosi and that said, it's clear we have a difference of opinion here. but you know, susan, it's not just susan ferrechio. you've -- nancy pelosi, more of the liberal wing have been energized by what happened in november. >> you got nothing else to do.
3:46 pm
imagine -- i've been there. imagine you're a liberal democrat right now. you don't control the senate. you don't control the house. you don't control the presidency. what the heck are you supposed to do when you get up every morning? and the only thing you can do, quite frankly, is make trouble. and most of the trouble you're going to make, unfortunately, or fortunately, is trouble for your own party. so i think it's a bit of a circus. it's not just nancy pelosi. i think elisabeth warren is right to say when i get up in the morning, if i see the financial regulations bill being gutted, i'm going to have to stand there and say something, even if obama is the target. so by the time we get to the christmas party a year from now, the list may be very small. >> when you say that list is getting small, do you see this increasing or do you see a sense of the next two years that you've got a big group of people moving to the liberal wing of the democratic party as this continues?
